Grateful Dead on the Vegas Strip. What a trip!
Wow still have this button from this show.
After the show I
Played the slots with Bill Kreutzman and his wife.
I invited them to come horseback riding when they came to Rochester for an upcoming show and he said they didn’t have time.
I said when do you have time to do things you want to do and he said “we are doing it!
Touring and playing music
That all we want to do”
Then I snuck in to see Wayne Newton sing a couple of songs.
Won money and diverted to the Grand Canyon for sunrise and colors!
Jerry was in good form August ‘81. Then there were the Greeks!

that typical early sounding tape
not really a fan of the sbd's of this era.
kinda funny how clean 76-78 was then 80's is hit or miss with the mix, by the time the ULTRA mix comes 87/88, short lived HYBRID.
finally back to better and better sound from 91 up

Great set list! I went to the set list program site and put in Lost Saint, Scarlet Fire, Playin', and Dew--thinking that that would be something of a dream show for me--and this came up. It's a great set list--I love opening the set with Lost Saint--and very nicely played throughout. Nice quality recording, too. I was at the Aladdin in '83--trippy place for a Dead show. This one is better.

Morning Dew, and a tight, solid show. Recommended.
This show is marked by a respectable first set and an interesting set list in the second set, different than most nights of this period. It’s much better than the previous night, with tighter playing and better vocals. Bob seems to have recovered from whatever was going on with him on the 30th.
It’s too bad that we don’t have a soundboard for the whole show. The first two minutes of Stranger are a pretty bad audience recording. That being said, it’s a good show. Jerry gives up good vocals on Candyman and Loser. The Cassidy is a first-set highlight, but we lose the soundboard 2 minutes in, replaced by an audience tape. This continues through Althea (switching back to soundboard a little after 2 minutes).
A fast-paced, energetic Let It Grow has some nice jamming (and good audio). The first set ends with a rocking Deal and a fiery Jerry having a good time.
The second set gives us a solid Lost Sailor>Saint and Scarlet>Fire, and a sweet Playing in the Band. After drums/space (nothing remarkable there), we land solidly into the blues with Good Time Blues, not often heard. Brent does a great job on vocal and organ, and Jerry isn’t bad, either. A show highlight.
After a short jam, we’re into another rare treat with Morning Dew, only the second of the year. They had only played Dew 14 times since 1974 (which was THE year for Dews). This is a great Dew, but it’s heartbreaking that shortly after it begins, the soundboard ends, replaced by a lower-pitch audience recording. There’s a short reprise of Playing in the Band reminiscent of the early ‘70’s sandwiches before the rocking closers.
In spite of all those 5-star reviews for the previous night, this show blows it away. Recommended.

scarlet>fire if nothing else...
good sound... similar to the tape i've had for years, but cleaner. excellent scarlet>fire in what i would say was THE year for them (not the biggest '77 fan here). Brent rips it up.
